"A Day on the Norma A is a compilation of experiences on the Norma A over several summers. I enjoyed being out on the sea in the boat and never cursed the knocking on the camper door at 3 or 4 a.m. in the cold salt air. Many prints and paintings, beside the book, were created after those trips. In A Day on the Norma A, I played with the printing of the text. Words became paths, by changing color words became sky or water. A page of text becomes a pattern of waves and currents. I printed again in signatures, but never intended them to be sewn."
